I usually don’t knit anything bigger than a mitten or hat, but I love this sweater and don’t really want to try to guess what size, wait forever, and then be disappointed because it is really rather crappily made. Projecting other disappointments here.
Anyone seen a pattern like this? or close enough to modify?
Making it from two sweaters seems doable. Altered Couture magazine shows a lot of projects like this, though it’s recommended to construct the item using a surger for best results which I know is not something everyone has access to (it’s why I haven’t made any of their projects ).
But, the second designer I considered was alpha knits, 3-in-1, because of the sleeve attachment. The faux layering is so intriguing!
Finally, I just did a reverse image search. The designer is named ‘almond’, and she used a knitting machine. I’m virtually positive the colors are off, as it’s in blues, but the undershirt is the same, as are all the photos (click the small photos on the page and it opens up)
That is a really cute sweater and I agree, easily made from other fulled sweaters. Looks like a simple pattern to draft, even that back pleat (vent? Gusset?) is fairly basic. Our local fabric land has knits on the bolt but the mister just went through his sweaters from last year & have me the holey ones to play with… hmm…
